Owner Info

Sherry & Mike Oxner

Sherry & Mike Oxner

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Mike is a civil engineer and Sherry is an RN. We currently live in Dayton, OH but have also lived in CA, US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. All these places have beautiful beaches but none compares to Destin, FL. Mike lived in Pensacola as a child and Sherry grew up vacationing in the Panama City Beach area. We vacationed here when our 2 children were growing up. Now our 5 grandchildren love to vacation here as well.

Why this property? We loved the split floor plan and proximity to our private beach access. We wanted a pool and this house has one of the largest back yards in the neighborhood. Mike designed our pool to fit the back yard and still leave lots of room for a big patio.

We bought a 2 bdrm ocean view condo in 2001 but as our family grew, we needed a larger property. We thought we'd miss the ocean view but found we much prefer the privacy of a single family home with garage and private pool.

Destin is the perfect family vacation destination!

review Michelle Marshall

Columbus, Ohio

Could not ask for anything more!

I am a repeat renter at this property and it never disappoints! The owners are very diligent about keeping the house in top condition. The kitchen is better stocked than mine. The house is roomy, immaculately clean and has comfy beds. A crib was provided for my two year old. My older kids spent most of their time swimming in the pool and hardly wanted to leave to go to the beach. When we did go to the beach there were chairs, umbrellas and sand toys in the garage for us to use. The location is perfect - walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The owner is fantastic with communication and providing information. I literally could not ask for anything more in a rental property. We will be back next year!

Thanks Michelle for that wonderful review! We love our repeat guests and look forward to having you back again! Sherry & Mike
